I don't know. I came up with this on the fourth of July when i was staring at the dvd cover and i decided that i'm just going to post it. Read and tell me what you think plz.

"Howl No!' Sophie screamed as the wizard fell over the cliff.

"Sophie, honey, wake up."

Brown eyes snapped open as stared blankly as the girl got her bearings.

"Sophie, are you alright?"

She turned her head to find herself staring into the blue eyes of the wizard lying next to her.

"I'm fine, it was just nightmare."

"Are you sure? You were yelling something but the sounded like Howl no."

"Ya I'm sure."

"If you say so."

Sophie smiled and rolled over. Howl moved closer and wrapped his arms around her, placing his head between her shoulder and neck.

"If you say so.

Sophie woke to bright sunlight streaming into her face. Squeezing her eyes shut she rolled over and buried her head in to Howl's chest.

"Good morning to you too." He said with a slight laugh.

"Must you get up this early?"

"Well I am an important wizard meaning my day starts early and ends late."

Sophie sighed and took her head from his chest to look at his face.

"Don't I know it."

Howl just smiled and bent his head to capture her lips with his.

"How did you sleep Markl?"

"Alright. How about you Sophie?"

"Fine thanks."

Markl just nodded as his mouth was full of eggs.

"Calcifer move the house 50 miles to the east" Howl said as he came down the stairs.

"I heated water for your bath, cooked your breakfast and, now you want me to move the castle. Don't I ever get a rest?"

"Or course you do. It's called when everyone else is asleep."

"Ya well with you and Sophie sharing a room now it's not that easy."

Sophie's face turned a brilliant shade of red.

"It'll be alright I promise."

"But you don't know that for sure."

"Sophie I know I'm going to come back."

"How can you be so sure Howl?" she asked, tears threatening to spill.

"Because I have you here and that's all the determination I need."

"But in my dream….."

"It was only a dream."

He wrapped his hands around her waist and leaned in, meeting her lips as she brought them up. Her hands wrapped around his neck as she leaned into the kiss. But all too soon he broke it.

"I'll be back. I promise."

"Mom how come I don't have a dad?"

Sophie swallowed the lump in her throat.

'You knew the question was coming.'

'Yes but why so soon.'

"You do have one Hoshi."

"Then how come I've never met him."

"Because you can't."


"Because he had to leave before you were born."


"To serve the king."

"Really. Wow. Was he a wizard?"

"Yes he was. And a very powerful one at that."

"What did he look like?"

"Exactly like you."

"Really. Cool."

Hoshi ran off to go play, satisfied his question had been answered.

"He couldn't help it Sophie. He knew when he agreed to help in the war that he might die."

"But it doesn't mean he had to promise he'd come back."

Ya i know its wierd but whatever. anyway tell me wat you think plz.
